Smoky notes mix with the lifted yarrow and lemon-peel notes of this wine. The palate is soft, rounded and medium-sweet, revealing a rich vein of peach compote flavors edged with bitter grapefruit pith. A wine of astonishing balance, it offers lively citrus notes and immense concentration.
Reviews wines from Austria, Alsace and England
German-born but London-based, Anne Krebiehl MW is a freelance wine writer contributing to international wine publications. She also lectures, consults and translates and has helped to make wine in New Zealand, Germany and Italy. She adores acidity in wine and is thus perfectly suited to her Austria/Alsace/England beat. Her particular weaknesses are Pinot Noir, Riesling and traditional-method sparkling wines.
